Thanksgiving Food Collection

November 19, 2023 - November 22, 2023

East End Cooperative Ministry (EECM)As Thanksgiving approaches, Shadyside Presbyterian Church invites members and friends to participate in a food collection for the Food Pantry at the East End Cooperative Ministry (EECM), which is experiencing an increase in food requests. Bags for donations will be distributed after worship on Sundays, November 12 and 19. A list of suggested donation items will be attached to the bags (please see below for suggestions). Filled bags will be collected at our Thanksgiving Eve service of worship on Wednesday, November 22.

If you are unable to attend the service, you are welcome to participate by bringing your bag to the church office during the week of Thanksgiving. If you prefer to make a monetary donation, checks should be made payable to “Shadyside Presbyterian Church” with “EECM Food Collection” on the memo line, and placed in the collection on Sunday, November 19, or on Wednesday, November 22. You may also mail your check to the church office. Alternatively, you may give online at www.shadysidepres.org/give by selecting “EECM” from the drop-down fund menu.

Please consider serving the community in this simple but critical way.
